5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Bow, 7 Feb 2014
Outnumbered, over the last 7 years, has shown us the lives of the ever-challenged Brockman family, and every series has had individual charm. While the earlier series played on the young innocence, this final series works as the humour originates from Ben and Jake's attempts to be mature, and Karen's attempts to to fit in with secondary school.

Two things make this the programme it is: the script and the VERY talented cast. The script, part written and part improvised, exposes the stanard british family to watch and the humour comes from the range of topic discussed, ranging from broken prisoners, football and the deep psychology of Sigmund Freud. The comedy works so well because… Read more

Call the Midwfe, without a doubt, is one of the best new drama's to come out of the BBC in the last decade.

Miranda Hart and Jessica Raine specifically are amazing in this programme, and have recieved many awards for their portrayals of the hard working midwives in 19th century Britain. Also the setting is nostalgic, and the drama has been very well costructed by the producers and scritpwriters.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 26 Jan 2014
Over the last decade I have thoroughly enjoyed Doc Martin - and this last series was no different. The day-to-day life of Doc Martin set against bueatiful cornwall landscapes is perfect for anyone having a night in with their partner, or a nice big cup on hot chocolate! Even though many things make this series work there is one that stands out specifically - the fantastic Martin Clunes, who plays grumpy Doc Martin. The personality he brings to that charecter is excellent, and I'm sure anyone else and the show would not have been the success it has. Clunes just brings that grumpy edge to the charecter that makes the audience love him and hate him in equal measure at the same time… Read more
